STORY:

The legendary actor AMITABH BACHCHAN IS as awesome and COMPELLING AS SARKAR as ever.

The story revolves around the protagonist, Sarkar or Subhash Nagre, the character portrayed by the legendary superstar actor Amitabh Bachchan, the patriarch of the most powerful king maker and political family of Maharashtra, who continues to hold centre-stage because of his immense clout with the masses. This is the third release of the franchise Sarkar, earlier releases of this sequel being Sarkar  and Sarkar Raj. The film witness the Godfather as supreme of the masses and is joined by his grandson, Shivaji Nagre which is played by Amit Sadh. He has a mixed feeling and reaction for his grandfather owing to his staunch stand and ideologies. It is still to be seen if he will rise against his grandfather or his grandfather will continue to use him as others for his principles and suppressing the outright antisocial clans.

The first and second part of this sequel has been a mixed emotional release which has narrated the rising of different family members of sarkar and at the same time the influence of anti sarkar people on his family. The protagonist has been the central figure throughout. The seond part has seen abrupt ending with a signal to the upcoming of third part. It has been very successful in keeping the interest of the viewers live for the next release. The protagonist has already lost both his sons and we have already witnessed the rise of a new character in his youngest daughter in law played by none other than Aishwarya Rai herself. Two of his lieutenants Gokul played by Ronit Roy and Raman played by Parag keep sarkar protected and at bay. This release has the wife of sarkar, Pushpa played by Supriya, constantly ailing and sarkar is busy to shield her with everything possible. To add to his already headache, his grandson Shivaji aka Cheeku is estranged from the protagonist. The young passionate grandson is influenced by the already estranged Gokul, who himself dreams to be the don. The power struggle within the four wall is not limited as other stronghold power hungry aspirants enters and keep the audience busy constantly with the likes of Govind Deshpande played by Manoj Bajpayee, a power-hungry political aspirant, a greedy Dubai-based businessman, Michael Vallya played by Jackie Shroff and a power-broker Gandhi played by Bajrangbali, plot together to destroy the grand figurative Sarkar and his larger influence and power with the weightage of other heavy star casts.

The film is more or less easy to guess although it is one of the heaviest star casts in the industry with astonishing performance. This accounts for little when one wishes to witness the stardom of the iconic Amitabh Bachhan as protagonist of the film. It seems that the director Ram Gopal Varma has not lost his high intensity. The invisible character Govinda is there as always with the shades and trademark light of the franchise. Grey shades of the actors are nothing less than spellbinding. Actresses like Yami Gautam, Supriya and Rohini, as the trend of the franchise, are struggling to mark their presence felt among the heavy weights.
